Too Good For Too Long

Over-extended systems contract quickly & violently
Friday, October 13, 2017, 8:42 PM

Having just lived through the massive fires in northern California -- on top of watching news reports over the previous weeks of similarly abrupt "before/after" transitions in Houston, Florida, Puerto Rico, Mexico City, Las Vegas and Catalonia -- I have a new-found appreciation for the maxim that when it arrives, change happens quickly -- usually much more quickly than folks ever imagined, catching the general public off-guard and unprepared.

We humans tend to think linearly and comparatively. In other words, we usually assume the near future will look a lot like the recent past. And it does much of the time.

But other times it doesn't. And that's where the danger lies. » Read more

Betrayal!

The pervasive & defining crime of our age
Friday, October 6, 2017, 8:35 PM

Let me apologize in advance for what may be an upsetting piece of writing for some of you. If you're in a state of shock or exhaustion from recent events, perhaps you should skip this one.

I don't offer this analysis in order to further distress anyone -- but until you understand what is happening and how that influences your psychological state, you'll remain the emotional equivalent of a rag doll shaken to-and-fro by events.

Such understanding may not bring you to a place of calm acceptance. But it will set you free. » Read more

The Waiting Is The Hardest Part

Tom Petty's anthem for today's investors
Thursday, October 5, 2017, 5:21 PM

The stock market is now 70% higher than it was as the previous bubble peak immediately preceding the 2008 Great Financial Crisis.

Reflect for a moment how painful the crash from Sept 2008-March 2009 was. How much more painful will a crash from today's much dizzier heights be? » Read more

Upon The Next Crisis, The Rules Will Suddenly Change

For the benefit of the elites; not the rest of us
Friday, September 29, 2017, 8:02 PM

We can add a third certainty to the two standard ones (death and taxes): The rules will suddenly change when a financial crisis strikes.

Why is this a certainty? Human nature, politics and the structure of societies/economies ruled by centralized states (governments). » Read more

What Really Matters

A reality-check on what's truly important in life
Wednesday, September 27, 2017, 4:06 PM

Here at PeakProsperity.com, we devote a lot of focus to building wealth and other forms of "capital". This website has hosted thousands of discussions on how to preserve and increase wealth.

But what's it all for?

Every so often, it's useful to pull waay back to look at the big picture. To re-examine the Why? underlying our plans and aspirations. » Read more

You're Likely A Lot Less Prepared For Crisis Than You Realize

Lessons from the recent rash of natural disasters
Friday, September 22, 2017, 3:25 PM

It seems as if Mother Nature is waking up. Either she's trying to send humans an important warning, or perhaps she's just out to kill us all.

Massive storms across the globe, earthquakes, and collapsing ecosystems all combine to remind us that we are indeed intimately connected to our planet's natural systems. And that our well-being rests on staying on Mother Nature's good side.

Well, Mother Nature has seemed pretty pissed at us of late. Her recent punishments should be taken as a disciplinary wake-up call. » Read more

Join Us In New Orleans -- Oct 27th

For a day of deep discussion on the future of the economy
Thursday, September 21, 2017, 2:17 PM

For those who can get themselves to New Orleans next month, I'm arranging a private location where Chris and I will hold an intimate Peak Prosperity summit.

Held from 10am-4pm on Friday, October 27th, we'll focus largely on our forecasts for the economy and the financial markets -- but will have plenty of flexibility to address any other topics and personal questions as prioritized by the attendees. 

While this will be a data-rich day's worth of discussion (charts will be plentiful), we're planning on this being much more of a roundtable group dialog rather than us simply speaking at you for six hours. Our goal is for this experience to be as informative, fun and highly-personal as possible. » Read more
